I started phase 1 on Saturday. I haven't been on the beach for a while, and decided I needed to get back. Winter is coming, and I need my Jeans and pants to fit! Maybe some of you experienced chicks can help me with my menu. Here is what I ate yesterday. Felt like a lot of food.

B- 3 egg muffins made with half eggs half egg beaters, canadian bacon, and lf cheese (I ate three because they came out really small!)

L- chickan divan from the previous night. Yum!

s- Spicy V8 and two slices of sharp cheddar

d- small portion of turkey breast tenderloin and green beans

s- peanut butter cup

I hate being sick.... it makes me grumpy and hungry and worse... gain weight!

I gained 1.5 lbs over the weekend but i'm not changing my counter just yet... I'm going to exercise this week really good so hopefully it all goes away quickly.

Saturday and Sunday I barely ate anything but carbs and I had 2 halloween cupcakes I made. I'm reducing my calories a lot this week, not to mention we need to go to the store. So I don't recommend anyone trying to follow my menu this week.

On The Menu Today:

Breakfast (8:00 am): 6 slices of deli sliced turkey (low fat); 1 slice of fat free cheese; Tazo Chai Tea with 1/2 tsp of Splenda

Snack (10:30 am): 6 slices of deli sliced turkey (low fat); Tazo Chai Tea with 1/2 tsp of Splenda

Lunch (12:00 pm): 2 cups of mixed greens salad with 2 tbsp of olive oil and vinegar dressing; 3 slices of deli sliced turkey (low fat)

Snack (3:30 pm): 15 almonds

Dinner (7:30 pm): Baked Chicken Breast with green giant veggie mix in herb sauce

Dessert (9:30 pm):
1/3 cup of Dannon Nonfat Vanilla Yogurt

Fitday Calorie Count: 976

D: Lean roast, steamed broccoli and salad
D: SF Fudgesicle
W: 120 oz (60 oz so far)
E: 60 minute treadmill - done & 30 minute pilates

skim milk is allowed in phase 1. Check out the updated food list.

Remember to get your 4 1/2 cups of vegetables a day.

Thanks Barb, I usually eat 2 cups of veggies at lunch and dinner each and then fill in with celery at snacks and some veggies with breakfast. I drink 4 oz of V8 daily, but I only use it to fill in as a last resort if I'm lacking -- I prefer fresh veggies over everything.

Since skim milk is P1 approved, I'm good, but I'd drink it even if it wasn't as I'm super-high risk for calcium deficiency due to ethnicity and family history. I also take a calcium supplement daily, but I prefer to get 50% of it from dairy products that are SB-approved.

i did the south beach diet about 2 years ago and lost 45 lbs. i have gained in 2 years 15 lbs back and lost 5 just by dieting. i would like to finish my goal and get down to 110. I started the south beach again on monday so i am hoping that i can be good. the hardest thing i have giving up is diet coke. i drink lots during the day and want to limit it to one can a day. i have already had 2 20 oz bottles today and it is not lunch. i hope by posting i can keep my self straight.

I buy the packs of turkey lunch meat because its the leanest meat I can find out of all of them. We usually eat a different meat at dinner time so I'm all turkey all day til then. I get most of my calcium and vitamin D from my One A Day Women's Plus Calcium I take in the morning. Plus I think milk makes my tummy feel yucky if I have a lot of it.

The 1200 calories is a bit much for me suprisingly.... I had a buddy I talk to on here tell me I need to be around 1100 to 1200 and I was gaining not losing when I tried to increase. But that could have been cause I wasn't exercising either I don't feel famished staying under 1000 calories which is odd, but I'm loving the weight loss I'm seeing!

Kellyis, welcome to The Beach.
Have you read the book? Phase I does not allow fruit or fruit juices so better lose the juice. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions section for the Phase I foodlist.
